Pakistan v South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Pakistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)

6.1

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, tossed up and turning in from off to leg, Misbah can't work it past Botha

6.2

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, OUT, run out appeal and Umar Akmal is on his way. Shorter and flatter from Misbah who turns it towards long leg. They take a single, but Umar wanted more. He was halfway down when he realised Misbah was not thinking of the suicidal second. He turned back, but could not beat the throw and was well short when AB broke the stumps

Umar Akmal run out 5 (5m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

6.3

Botha to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, well, he bashed the first ball for six yesterday, but chooses a far more non-violent option today. Driven robustly into the covers for one

6.4

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, Misbah stays in the crease and works it back to the bowler

6.5

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, Misbah is getting stuck again, pushed back by a quicker one and he just about gets bat on it and plays it back to Botha

6.6

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, lovely bit of loop and dip from Botha. Slower through the air and Misbah was very early into the shot. Rapped on the pads, but he was well forward and that may have saved him

Pakistan 37/4   J Botha 1-0-2-0

8.1

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, Razzaq plays back to Botha - remember he was owned by a Botha floater yesterday - but picks the spin this time and plays to cover

8.2

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, Misbah plays inside the line to a floater this time and misses outside edging it by a whisker

8.3

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, another floater, and another fumble from Misbah as he closes the face early and gets a leading edge

8.4

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, again a leading edge as he closes the face and picks a single square

8.5

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, Razzaq is decidedly playing back here and plays out a length ball to the off side

8.6

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, tossed up on middle and Razzaq looks to tickle it fine, but can't elude short fine leg

Pakistan 43/5   J Botha 2-0-4-0

10.1

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, flighted on off and Razzaq drives without timing straight to cover

10.2

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, back of a length and coming in, Razzaq waits on the back foot and uses the wrists to work it square on the off side for one

10.3

Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, Misbah reaches outside off and works it with the spin to the leg side for one

10.4

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, floater outside off, Razzaq gropes without a clue and misses. AB appeals for a catch, but Razzaq was just not good enough to edge this

10.5

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, 1 wide, another wide, this one slides down the leg

10.5

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, sliding donw the pads again and Razzaq glances it fine but for no runs.

10.6

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, change in angle and change in trajectory. Complete befuddlement. Razzaq flails without conviction as another floater drifts past him from round the wicket.

Pakistan 55/5   J Botha 3-0-7-0

12.1

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, SIX, Razzaq semss blood. He has had enough of the typing down and unfurls a typically robust bash down the ground to a flighted ball that lands well beyond the boundary

12.2

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, he picks a single this time, working it to the leg side

12.5

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, 1 wide, Botha slides this down the leg, as he looks to deny Razzaq room for another golf swing. Ends up conceding a wide

12.5

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, no run, another one sliding down the leg, but Razzaq makes contact. Can't pick a single though.

12.6

Botha to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, works it with the turn to square leg and picks another single. Botha finishes a fine spell. 6 of the 17 runs he conceded came off one ball
